expect quite clearly him to work very carefully with secretary kerry of the united states who will be in late tonight and with the ukrainians tomorrow morning to do what he can to prop up ukraine but at the same time tried to, with a way to punish russia. to speed with the latest military situation. clearly a mobilization has taken place over the weekend. but it is not clear who is on whose side. >> that's right. -- russia in control of crimea. troops on the ground. they are working with a russian speaking militia there. got permission on saturday from the parliament to deploy troops. but these forces actually a. before that permission. there is a sense that we actually could see an escalation from where we are now. yesterday they surrounded ukrainian military bases. like you said, the ukrainians themselves are mobilizing but also seeing defections. so, just over the weekend we have seen the head of the navy defect. pro-russian crimean authorities. ironically just one day after he was put in the job after his predecessor was fired over concerns over his loyalty. so, clearly th
proposed and wholeheartedly support the immediate deployment from the u.n. >> as secretary of state kerry made plans to travel to kiev, he warned there will be a price to pay. >> there are visa bans, there are asset freezes. there's isolation with respect to trade and investment. >> the european union has also agreed to consider targeted economic measures against russia. mr. obama said congress could help make the ukrainian people less economically dependent on moscow. >> one thing they could do right away is work with the administration to help send packages to the ukraine and the people and the government. >> meanwhile, the ukrainian government is installing pro-business governors in the pro-russian eastern part of the country. russia's foreignm minister said ukraine is creating a government of victors. >> wendell, thank you. we turn now to the politics and policy of engaging vladimir putin. let's bring in senior political analyst brit hume. good evening. your thoughts? >> well, bret, one thing is clear here, is this is not like dealing with north korea. a country isolated from the rest
to exert influence on a neighboring country. >> meanwhile, secretary of state john kerry was in kiev, he was there to show solidarity with the ukrainian people, he walked down one of the streets expressed support and honored those who had been killed by government snipers as recently as a week ago. john kerry warning, that the pretext of russians, was to, in fact, go into eastern, and southern ukraine. that was the plan, the implication that john kerry said they don't simply have their sites on krimia. and commended them for not accepting the provocations as we just saw. and not enganging with russian forces and military action. here is more of what john kerry had to say. >> we condemn the act of aggression, and we have throughout this moment evidence of a great transformation taking place, and in that transformation, we will stand with the people of ukraine. >> now, for his part, vladimir putin said that russian troops he denied. the troops were even in the krimea. that's hard to believe. he spoke for the first time since the outset of this crisis. >> who is arguing with that. >> now ne
? >> providing this off ramp. >> this morning, secretary of state john kerry arrived. >> kerry's arrival coin sides with a proposed pact -- >> will europe go along with the united states to make it truly effective? >> there's not a clear black and white. >> that's because europe and the u.s. aren't entirely on the same page. >> merkel basically questioned putin's state of mind. >> he is living in a different world and the europeans understand that. >> there is a strong belief that russia's action is violating international law. >> in a press conference today, vladimir putin said i am certain that the ukrainian military and the russian military will not be facing each other. they will be on the same side in a fight. but hours before he said that, russian troops outside a ukrainian base fired warning shots at unarmed ukrainian soldiers who were marching towards them. according to vladimir putin, those were not russian troops, but, as he put it, quote, local defense units. putin continued to deny that russian troops have invaded ukraine. putin had this to say about what he called the united stat
the countries around the world indicates that russia is on the wrong side of history on this. >> secretary kerry has a speech coming out this evening and getting on a plane and headed to kiev and might be meeting with the russian counter parts along the line, per happens in rome before or after the meeting, but going to ukraine and talking about what the united states can do to provide economic help. >> mike, thank you. joining us from washington to talk us through some of the knew yanss of all of this, william miller, a former ambassador, president obama is saying that the steps that russia has taken are violating the sovereignty of ukraine and integrity and violating the international law, is the president correct in all of the points? >> yes, he is. russia undertook in 1994, in return for ukraine giving up the third largest nuclear arsenal in the world to guarantee to ukraine that it would be free from any political, military, or economic pressures or coercion, this was reaffirmed again at the end of 1994, and repeatedly since. it's very clear what is taking place now in crimea is a violation
they think could be repercussions from the international community? >> well, kerry is on his way here. he wants to do two things. one, prop up ukraine by directly expressing support for ukraine. some think this russian intervention adds impetus to is push to a russian-led apec, which comes later in the week. on the other hand, he may want to punish russia with whatever leverage they have. he spent the better part of yesterday on the phone with a whole host of leaders. have a listen. >> it is really 19th century behavior in the 21st century. there is really no way to start with, if russia persists in this, that the g-8 countries are going to assemble in sochi. that's a starter. >> and one thing, he's been talking about the ruble weakening. we're seeing more of that today or the prospect of more of that happening today. so i think kerry thinks, and the u.s. thinks, that some of russia, that asome of the punishment for russia will be self-inflicted. they are also talking about asset freezes, visa bans. the u.s. does $40 billion in trade with russia. kicking russia out of the g-8, or at least
withdrawal. the secretary of state, john kerry, he's due to fly out tonight, to go to kiev in ukraine. he spoke moments ago at the state department, and he condemned russian's invasion of crimea as an incredible act of aggression. in moscow, russian's parliament is considering legislation that could ultimately lead to the annexation of crimea as russian territory. the russian president putin appears to be taking a very active role in military drills in western russia. the exercises involve about 150,000 troops, along with aircraft and ships. putin called for snap drills and surprise inspections throughout the region. let's go straight to the region, cnn's anderson cooper in kiev. russian media denying they have issued an ultimatum, but ukrainian troops clearly worried. what is the latest you're seeing and hearing on the ground? >> there is a lot of concern. it's obviously an incredibly tense situation here in kiev. the central government, the new government here is shaky, at best. there is an interim president, new prime minister, prime minister saying this country is on the brink of disa

kerry will arrive in ukraine. he will take a tough stance on the russian invasion perhaps? or can we expect more of this? >> folks, sarah palin said she could see russia from alaska. mitt, mitt romney talks like he's only seen russia by watching "rocky 4." all the latest on what's happened overnight coming right to you in minutes. >> he's funny. meanwhile will she or won't she? lois lerner and her attorney can't seem to get the story straight. this morning new details and an e-mail chain you probably haven't seen regarding the i.r.s. targeting scandal. >> a giant american flag found torn, tattered and thrown to the side like a piece of trash, but what one woman did will make you proud to be an american if you're not already. mornings are better with friends. watch this. >> you're watching "fox & friends," the number-one morning cable news show in america.

danger. secretary of state kerry reacted this way to putin. he is not going to be able to gain by. this he may have troops some period of time in crimea unless he resolves. this the fact is he is going to lose on the international stage. he that may find himself with asset freezes russian business. american business may call back there may be a further tumble of the ruble. there is a huge price to pay. >> but the only way russia will lose is if president obama moves quickly to punish that nation. the way to do that is to move against russian banks. last september, senator richard blumenthal of connecticut urged president obama to slap sanctions on russian banks because they were propping up the assad regime in syria. the president did not do that and assad is still killing innocent people today. but now mr. obama to do it. because that's the only way putin will pull back. the u.s.a. has to power, has the power to crush the russian currency the ruble which is already in trouble. freezing russian assets and boycotting russian banks would badly damage the russian currency. that's the
en pass. the foreign secretary of secretary of state john kerry and the ukrainian foreign minister. but when the russians showed up there was no place at the table for the ukrainians. moscow does not even recognize the government in kiev. still the secretary of state john kerry said that they would continue with their efforts. >> we agreed to continue intense discussions in the coming days with russia, with ukrainians in order to see how we can help normalize the situation, stabilize it, and overcome the crisis, and those intentions are intentions shared exactly as i have described them between russia, the united states, european countries, and ukrainians who were here. all parties agreed today that it is important to try to resolve these issues through dialogue. >> well, yes, tony, dialogue is all well and good. but dialogue that goes nowhere provides nothing. and unless there is at least some movement on one side or the other then these blinders that the diplomats have on when it comes to their own positions and what they bring these discussions, it just looks like there is this
at all. >> yeah, tony, not much progress at all. it's quite clear. secretary of state john kerry held a press conference two hours ihours after the meeting. it was clear not a lot of movement was made. there was positions stated by the united states and the west. said, of course, that they do want to do more. but not a lot of results. let's take a quick listen to what secretary of state kerry had to say. >> we agreed to continue intense discussions in the coming days with russia, with ukrainians in order to see how we can help normalize the situation and stabilize it. all parties agreed today that it is important to try to resolve these issues through dialogue. >> it sounds good, tony, but you know, where is the result? where is the development? of course everybody agrees that it's better to de-escalate the conflict, but you need to have movement, and clearly that was not today. >> phil, in all of this talking, brussels starting tomorrow, and the european foreign ministers have threaten sanctions against russia, but that's going to be a difficult sales job as well, isn't it. >> keepin

influence inside that state. >> early ray, secretary of state john kerry said the u.s. would hold russia directly responsible to any escalation in the ukraine. ahn kerry offered ukraine package of loan guarantees and send a warning to moscow. >> none of us want to escalate this so that it becomes the kind of confrontation where people cannot find a reasonable path a result,d where, as you're stuck in a place that's very hard to climb down from. slowlyian markets are recovering from monday's selloff, the biggest loss in five years in the ruble dropped to a record low. non-russian companies with exposure are still worried about their aspects. >> how much of this is a shadow about what is going on in ukraine? >> if it deteriorates, we all have ramifications in terms of economic activity. i sincerely hope it gets resolved before that. welcome back. i am mark barton. 6:32 a.m. in london and is getting breaking earnings from the second biggest sportswear maker, adidas sporting goods company, number two after nike and earnings for the fourth quarter beating estimates. fourth quarter net income

of the midon, the crisis in the ukraine has changed its face. it hasn't dissipated. and today secretary kerry was greeted in kiev by ukrainians pleading for the continued support of the united states. and so having been so clear voiced in our support of the ukrainian people thus far since the tproe tests began last november, now is the moment when republicans and democrats should stand united in this congress so years from now when a group assembles in kiev marking the anniversary of this grave crisis they will celebrate ukraine's political sovereignty and economic rebirth with more chance of thanks to the united states. so, in what shape should this support come? first, we need to stand together in the next week to deliver serious financial assistance to ukrainian economy that is weak and is growing weaker as this crisis persists. a $1 billion aid package is a good start, but our real work must happen within the structures of the i.m.f., which can provide the potentially tens of billions of dollars necessary to fully right the ukrainian economic ship. and while ukraine does need to undergo e
